ur enemy an immense advantage, and our General no doubt consider the present not the time to repeat disasters. The evacuation of Nashville under these circumstances has been regarded here for some days as an event consequent upon the full of Fort Donelson, which opened the Cumberland to the gunboats up to Nashville. Motives of humanity had also, no doubt, their influence in inducing the abandonment of a city nearly as large as Richmond, filled with women and children, who would have been of humanity, as well as prudence, to abandon a town under the circumstance, which our Generals had not the certain means to defend. That the loss of Nashville is mortifying no one will deny, but its fate was inevitable after the fall of Fort Donelson. It had no fortifications of consequence — no means of checking the operations of the enemy's gunboats — and resistance there would have been useless.

Situation of things in Tennessee. The telegraph from Memphis, published this morning, gives us more than we have had up to this time from our side relative to the state of things in Tennessee. The distressing silence of the War Department excited the worst apprehensions about Fort Donelson, and the truth sustains them. Our loss there is terrible.
